Square Enix has announced that the voices that helped make Frozen, Tangled, Toy Story, Hercules, and more are returning to breathe life into their characters in Kingdom Hearts III, more within...

Since the inception of movies to video games, very rarely have we seen the original actor(s) reprise their roles for the interactive version.  Even Kingdom Hearts, in its early days, had to bring in new actors to voice some iconic characters.  The most high profile voice of the series was mainly Haley Joel Osment.  With Kingdom Hearts III, however, that's all about to change.  Along with the return of Haley Joel Osment as Sora, Square Enix has announced that the highly anticipated game has brought in the A-list cast from Disney's Frozen and Tangled, along with some iconic voices from Pirates of the Caribbean, Hercules, Toy Story, and other Disney IPs to reprise their roles for the English dub.
